The Bible has a lot of Bible verses about blessings others. Blessings are associated with happiness, welfare, and protection. We see God blessing people in the Bible and His blessings helping direct them to stay on the path of righteousness.
But…God is not the only one who can give blessings. There is also scripture about blessing others. We see many people in the Bible who bless others and we can too!
Thankfully, there are many things we can do to bless others. It doesn’t always have to be a verbal blessing (although prayer is always the most powerful). We can be a blessing to others by giving our time, money, advice, and more! We don’t always have to do something BIG to bless others. The little things count and are a blessing all the way around.
Today, I want to share Bible verses about blessing others. They have helped me understand the importance of being a blessing and receiving blessings. I encourage you to memorize these Bible verses so you can always remember the power of God’s blessings and be encouraged to bless others.
